the blow up turkey in pilgrim garb does not have a musket

oye!  whatta weekend!  lots of fun, lots of frustrations, too.  *laugh*  i don't wanna go into the frustrations, tho, so we'll concentrate on the happy!  friday's birthday celebration you have already heard about.  : )  saturday was fun, too!  

when i got up, i organized all the christmas presents into bags for each person/family.  i was going to do some wrapping, and go to the post office to mail some of it (and the birthday month winner prizes!), but i lost track of time & didn't get out of here til 12:30 or 1.  i didn't get any wrapping done, either.  idk why, i just didn't feel in a wrapping mood after all the other work was done.  LOL  yes, though i love all the routines of christmas presents, i don't really like to wrap presents.  i'm not really good at it - better now than when i worked at kirkland's & they tried to have me wrap professionally.  that didn't work out so much.  LOL  

anyway, so i went out to ... somewhere yesterday to pick up a couple things.  is it sad that i can't remember now where i went because i've been doing so much shopping lately?  (just so no one gets worried that i'm spending myself into debt or anything crazy - shopping doesn't always mean buying, or buying much.  sometimes it's nothing, sometimes one or two things.)

when i got home, bret was watching season 2 of vampire diaries online, so i curled up on the couch & started reading Waiter Rant.  gooood book!  i got a third of the way through before i had to go to bed. i tried to send a blog from the phone, but after writing for an hour, it poofed away.  :(  NOT a happy camper there!  

this morning, i got up early (well, early for sunday!) & met marcie & trish & part of her family at golden corral for birthday breakfast.  YUMMIEZ!!!  : )  i had a little bite of lots of things - eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuit & gravy - even tried some grits & corned beef hash.  the hash was alright, but wasn't fond of the grits.  trish's friend, joy, really liked them, tho!  heh.  

after breakfast, joy, marcie, trish & i went to the theatre to watch harry potter (again for me, of course).  even better the 2nd time around!  very awesome graphics & i think this film best embodies part 1 of the book.  i may have to watch again...on imax, perhaps?  idk who'll want to go, tho.  anyone?  ; )  

after the movie, mom was waiting in the front, she wanted to see a movie & since the times worked out, asked if i'd like to see it, too.  but i don't do very well w/ back to back movies.  idk why!  i like the concept of a double-feature!  *laugh*  i just 90% of the time don't want to see two movies in a row.  weird, i know.  i do like seeing a movie, going shopping or to a meal, then seeing another one, tho.  

so, i went to kohl's to return an ornament & get two other ones - i found an ornament for lisa that i really liked at one store, but then i saw another one ... so... decisions, decisions!  i was going to gordman's to return the wallet i got for mom (her new purse is going to have everything that a wallet would have so she said she doesn't need one anymore), but they were paaaacked, so i didn't go in.  *sigh*  i went to WM, but just spent some quiet time in the car because i didn't really want to go in.  i was having an "i miss the boys" moment - and jen had texted me earlier to see if i could watch them for a little bit tonight, but i already had plans.  

mom was supposed to get out of her movie a little after 4.  i texted to say i didn't really want to go to the production anymore (idk why, i think i was just pooped or something!) but that sam's was open til 6 so we could go there after her movie.  never heard back from her.  so i went into TJ Maxx to find a book for aunt judy.  but they didn't have any more!  :(  the thing about TJM & Marshall's that i love is also the thing that i hate - can't go in there EXPECTING to find something specific.  have to go in & be surprised by what you find.  i broke that rule & then i was disappionted, because i really think she would like this book!  ah well.  

finally, it was about 5, and mom still hadn't responded to my texts, and i thought surely her movie couldn't have lasted THAT long.  so i stopped at big 10 for a diet pepsi & then called her - she hadn't gotten my texts - and the movie had been out since FOUR!  ?!?!  :(  anyway, so i just came home.  i'm going to finish watching Founder's Day from season 1 & then idk what i'll watch!  

i can't believe it's only 6 o'clock!  coming home, it felt like 8 or 9, all the darkness!  *laugh*  

anywhoooo.. i am off to read some blogs.  i am woefully behind on all of your posts!  ttfn!
